You may be ahead to buy another, but you'll never know til you really look it over. Sometimes rocking them back and forth with the rear tires and bumping the shifter will free it up. It could be a few specks or rusted solid.The only thing about buying another is you may get the same thing you have, other than someone has done 2 or 3 hours of work to it. Around here, one like you describe would go for scrap price to $500 or 600 if the tires were decent. The same tractor someone pulled out of a brush thicket, aired up the tires, charged or replaced the battery, cleaned the carb and points, and maybe a new set of plugs, they would want $1200-1500. And of course its always some tale like this was old uncle so and so's tractor, and he took care of it like family......etc. Personally, Id rather pull them out of the brush thicket myself, rather than pay for a $1000 tune up.
